Robert Kubica said he was 'very pleased' with his DTM test at Valencia on Thursday, after driving a high downforce car for the first time since his near-fatal rally accident in February 2011. He appeared to have no significant difficulties adjusting to the the Mercedes AMG C-Coupé, and managed to produce some respectable lap times.
"I felt very comfortable in the car, even though after my long break it meant adjusting to the high downforce that a state-of-the art DTM race car produces," Kubica said after his day at the wheel. "I’m very pleased with my performance on this first day of DTM testing and had no problems whatsoever in the car."
Although the test was affected by rain, Kubica enjoyed having the opportunity to run in different weather conditions.
"The first installation lap was in the dry, then a few heavy showers of rain came down and we had to wait for the track to dry out," the Pole added. "All in all, it was a good experience, getting to know the car in different weather conditions."
Despite the successful test with the German marque, it is still unclear whether or not the 2008 Canadian Grand Prix winner will make a full time return to racing.
